Subject: Lyr Add: SHAKE IT AND BREAK IT (Charley Patton)
From: Brian Hoskin
Date: 24 May 00 - 07:42 AM

Here's 'Shake It and Break It'

You can shake it you can break it you can hang it on the wall,
Throw it out the window, catch it 'fore it roll.
You can shake it you can break it you can hang it on the wall,
. . it out the window, catch it 'fore it falls.
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall.

Everybody have a jelly roll like mine, I lives in town,
I ain't got no brown, I an' I want it now.
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall.

You can snatch it, you can grab it, you can break it you can twist it,
Any way that I love to get it.
I had my right mind, since I - I blowed this town,
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama don't let it fall.

Jus' shake it, you can break it, you can hang it on the wall,
. . .it out the window, catch it 'fore it falls.
You can break it, you can hang it on the wall,
. . .it out the window, catch it 'fore it . . .
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall.

I ain't got nobody here but me and myself,
I stay blue all the time, aw, when the sun goes down.
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama don't let it fall.

You can shake it, you can break it, you can hang it on the wall,
. . .it out the window, catch it 'fore it fall.
You can break it, you can hang it on the wall,
. . .it out the window, catch . . .
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama don't let it fall.

You can snatch it, you can grab it, you can break it, you can twist it,
And way that I love to get it.
I had my right mind, I be worried sometime,
'Bout a jelly, my roll, sweet mama don't let it fall.

Just shake it, you can break it, you can hang it on the wall,
. . .it out the window, catch it 'fore it falls.
You can break it, you can hang it on the wall,
. . .it out the window, catch it 'fore it falls.
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama don't let it fall.

I know I been to town, I - I walked around.
I start leavin' town, I - I fool around.
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama don't let it fall.

Just shake it, you can break it, you can hang it on the wall,
. . .it out the window, catch it 'fore it falls.
You can break it, you can hang it on the wall,
. . .it out the window, catch it 'fore it . . .
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama don't let it fall.

Just shake it, you can break it, you can hang it on the wall,
. . .it out the window, catch it 'fore it . . .
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it . . .

Hey everybody. I'm wanting any information you guys can give me on the song Shake It and Break It. I have the lyrics memorized from the two very different versions I've heard, Son House's and Charley Patton's. I can even play Son's version, although Charley's version has a lot of little weird things in it that I can't copy no matter what and I'm dying for some help, tabs or chords or anything that will help me learn to play it. I'd also like to know some history on the song and what it means. Can anyone help me? Thanks!
